* What makes the tunnel hull work?
A three-part article written by Jim Russell of AeroMarine Research which summarizes the main hydrodynamic and aerodynamic forces which must be carefully considered and skillfully balanced in the design of a tunnel hull powerboat. While the tunnel hull derives much of its high performance from air lift, it depends at the same time on its planing interaction with the water to maintain a stable and controlled flight. This interdependence of water and air force dynamics is the key to Tunnel design.
